About the book:
Fledgling illustrator and Darcy fanatic Kay Ashton settles in the seaside town of Lyme to finish her book, The Illustrated Darcy, when a film company arrives to make a new adaptation of Jane Austen’s Persuasion. Kay is soon falling for the handsome bad boy actor playing Captain Wentworth, but it’s the quiet screenwriter Adam Craig who has more in common with her beloved Mr. Darcy. Though still healing from a broken heart, Adam finds himself unexpectedly in love with Kay. But it will take more than good intentions to convince her that her real happy ending is with him.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is part of Victoria Connelly’s “Austen Addict” series. Yes, that name alone made me buy this book. I will gladly confess I am an Austen addict!! This book didn’t disappoint. It reminded me of a fun, modern twist on Jane Austen’s Emma and Persuasion, although it’s Mr. Darcy that the main character can’t stop dreaming of and painting. It’s a fun, romantic comedy and I highly enjoyed it. If you are any level of Jane Austen fan…you will love this!
